Our beautiful, newly decorated beach house is exactly what you have been looking for! Located in THE perfect location on Gulf Blvd. in Redington Beach where you can watch the sunrise or sunset over beautiful Redington Beach OR pristine Boca Ciega Bay from our “Crow’s Nest” balcony every day of the year! Redington Beach is arguably one of the most sun-drenched beaches in America! That's because this amazing part of Florida sees sunlight 361 days out of the year. Put on your swimsuit and flipflops, walk out the front door and cross the street onto the beautiful white sands of the Gulf of Mexico. You will literally be from door to beach in just a few short minutes with beach access being a few houses to the north or south on Gulf Blvd. (The photo of our house from the beach will give you a feel for how close we are to the beach. Unfortunately a new home has since been built on the formerly empty lot. Nevertheless we still have a great view of the beach and, of course our proximity to the beach hasn't changed).

Our “Key West” style beach house sleeps up to 12 people VERY COMFORTABLY! The Second Level (Main Level) of the home has new beach wood floors and has recently been painted. New furniture and beach themed home décor throughout the home will engulf your senses throughout your beach vacation stay. Our Main floor has a fully stocked, modern kitchen with all the utensils, pots, pans and appliances any cook could ask for! The great room and dining area provide ample space for large gatherings of friends and family. A rock fireplace, 48” 1080P flat screen TV with 200w sound bar provides access to DirecTV, Netflix, Amazon Prime, and other popular streaming services. Even the kids can play on the X Box Gaming System complete with 11 games and dual controls.

Follow the hallway to Bedroom #1, furnished with 2 bunk beds (sleeps 4). The ELEVATOR that provides comfortable access to both floors opens into this bedroom.

Continue down the main hallway to the fully tiled “Grand Bathroom” with 2 sinks, jetted tub, separate shower. Bedroom #2, with brand new carpet contains a new queen bed and 24” 1080P flat screen TV, also with satellite and streaming video access. Across the hallway is the master bedroom. With access to the grand bathroom the master bedroom is the perfect place to retreat and rest after an amazing day at the beach. Lay back and relax to your 32” 1080P flat screen TV. Watch what you want! After all, you have satellite and streaming TV access to thousands of viewing choices! Every room in the house includes Bluetooth portable stereo units so you can listen to your downloaded music with crisp clear sound at any level.

Two roll away twin beds add extra sleeping space for larger groups. The Main level will sleep up to 8 people.

The first floor unit is all tile and has been freshly painted and decorated. With a mini kitchen, complete with stove, oven, microwave, refrigerator, appliance, cooking and eating utensils.

The elevator opens to a comfortably sized sitting room (elevator is currently out of operation). The Main Family Room is furnished with a large, brand new sectional couch and two 'X Twin' futons. This area is perfect for smaller gatherings. When it is time to go to bed, the gathering area comfortably sleeps 4 people. The family room is also furnished with a 40” 1080P flat screen TV with satellite and streaming access.

Directly off the Family room is a bedroom furnished with 4 twin beds (one is a pull out trundle twin). Two of the beds can be pushed together to make a cozy, comfortable queen bed. A bathroom with a shower finish off the 1st level living area. Of course all the rooms include top line Bluetooth sound systems and are decorated in cheerful beach décor!

The first floor level comfortably sleeps 8 people. Combining both levels a large family or group of 14 people can comfortably rest for the night.

Beach parking won’t be a problem here! No more costly parking fees while spending time at the beach! With a 2.5 car garage and a half circle driveway, 3-4 cars can park! By the way, the garage includes a full washer and dryer and it is stocked with all the gear you could possibly need for your Florida beach vacation! Beach toys, fishing gear, picnic coolers, beach blankets, umbrellas, beach chairs and more! 11 bicycles and 2 child scooters will make your local commute or touring an absolute pleasure! Winn Dixie Market and CVS pharmacy are only 2 blocks down the street, not to mention 'The Surf Shop', located about a block from the house and 'John's Pass', a favorite destination of locals and visitors which is less than two miles down Gulf Blvd. John's pass is home to 'Buba Gumps', 'Hooters', local pizzerias, beach bars, deep sea fishing tours, a marina and lots of shopping. 'John's Pass' is a 'must see' on your list of places to visit. If mini golf is your pleasure, you can walk one block south and enjoy yourself! We have you covered for your daily walk/bike to the beach. With luxurious, over sized beach towels provided for each guest, 6 beach chairs, 3 beach umbrellas, a rolling/backpack cooler, 4 mini coolers, loads of children’s beach toys and 7 body boards, your family has everything necessary for hours of fun and relaxation at our pristine beach! And… after a sandy day at the beach, shower off with our back yard shower!

A six burner BBQ grill and patio fire pit does the trick for restful nights in the back yard. The back porch is made up of beautiful shale and is surrounded by dozens of palm trees and fauna, natural to the Florida Gulf Coast. Want to check out the beach and the sunrise or sunset? You can do so from the oversized deck that can be accessed from either of 2 French Doors that open off the Main Level Great Room. Walk up another level to our “Crows Nest Deck”. Now you are above it all! To the east, your view is that of the Intracoastal Waterway known as Boca Ciega Bay. To the west is an unimpeded view of the crashing waves against the white sands of the Gulf of Mexico! Patio furniture on every deck and in the backyard finish off the accouterments that ensure your total comfort throughout your vacation stay.

Even though you have all you need for an amazing vacation and never need to leave the house, you are located in THE premiere location on Florida's Gulf Coast! The 'Suncoast Beach Trolley' and the 'Pinnelas Suncoast Transit Authority' buses pass the house every 15-30 minutes 365 days a year! The stop is located directly at the base of our driveway!

About Craig Gibson

My wife (Karen) and I love our beach vacations! We absolutely love the Gulf. For years we have traveled with our large family (8 children, 8 grandchildren and 3 lovely daughters in law) to various beaches for our family vacations. We absolutely love renting beach homes, particularly because nothing matches the feeling of hanging out in beach towns and communities. Last year, after returning from one of our annual Caribbean Cruises we drove down the Florida Gulf Coast looking for houses. We found this perfect home in Redington Beach and have furnished it, painted it, decorated it and prepared it so we could have a slice of the beach life we have always longed for. We currently live in Salt Lake City, Utah and we visit Florida whenever we can. We are happy to share this great home on the beach with you!

It remains our sincere goal to provide our guests with a great vacation experience. We know how long and hard people save for their precious vacations and we truly want you to have a happy, positive memory of your stay. We will not promote or represent anything in our home that is not real and genuine. The complete satisfaction of our guests remains our priority and we will do everything within our power to provide you with one of your happiest, relaxing beach vacations ever.

Craig Gibson purchased this house in 2014

Why Craig Gibson chose Redington Beach

If you are an experienced beach vacationer like we are, you know how much it can cost to spend a night.. or a week... or more, in a beach house. Some of the homes in our neighborhood rent for $800 - $1,500/night! Not to mention the beach hotels along the coast between Clearwater and St. Pete Beach. These hotels rates range from $200-$500/night! Our particular beach house is located on Gulf Blvd. Same Blvd. as any other beach house in the region. The difference between our beach rental and the other beach rentals is that we live across the street from the beach. Even though our property is not on the beach itself, it still has all the views, all the feel, all the convenience and only steps away from the beach. The difference is that you, your friends and your family can stay an entire week in our beach house for just about what it would cost you to stay 1 or 2 nights with our neighbors across the street. We have an amazing location at an absolute fraction of the cost!! Why wouldn't we buy this property? Besides, with our 'Key West' architecture, we absolutely fell in love with this house the minute we drove past it last summer for the first time.

What makes this house unique

You are staying in a Beach House at a mere fraction of the cost of many other houses in the area. Not only do we have a great location with amazing beach and water views, this home has every amenity anybody vacationing at the beach could ever want. 10 bicycles, HD TV's in every room, patio furnishings, a brand new quartz glass patio heater, a 6 burner BBQ, shower in the yard, beach towels, boogie boards, beach toys, beach chairs and umbrellas, beach coolers.... We even have a washer and dryer for you! This is such a great place to stay. You won't be sorry for choosing to spend your vacation in this awesome beach home!!!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Craig and Karen. We had a great time, the house is better than the pictures. We felt right at home with everything you need. at your fingertips. Eventhough the house is on Gulf Blvd. We did not here any noise once we were inside. The backyard is lovely and relaxing after a long day at the beach which is a really short distance. Thank you Craig for being so accomodating and great hostess with our family. Hope to stay at the house in a near future

We had a great time, but the place needs detailing

  • 4 of 5

Many small items need repair that detract from the attractiveness of the property. Main burner on stove not even coming on, and a long list which was sent to maintenance contact. We had 2 among us living with congestive heart failure and that elevator sure would have helped.

Some of us repaired the side door to the garage so it would lock, unplugged the commode, repaired the drawer tracks in the guest bedroom, bike locks and beach chairs not as represented, no dish towels or dish rags, etc.

Way too much for 4 nites and 3 days, but we adjusted and made do.

We all had a wonderful time, love the decor!

We adjusted to everything and didn’t sweat it, but hope y’all will detail the house for future tenants.

Owner's Response: Wendy Karen and I are pleased you enjoyed your stay however, we are sincerely disappointed to hear about the minor frustrations you seem to have encountered. To future guests reading this review, please take note that we have received over 100 Guest Reviews, 94 of which have been perfect 5 Stars. This is the first review in our 4 years of operation we have encountered any issues. It has always been our primary goal to provide our guests with a 5 Star experience. Our home is 80%+ booked every year because we provide much more service and amenities for the dollar than any property in the region. We also donate one week every year to Big Brothers/Big Sisters of America so under privileged children can enjoy a once in a lifetime experience on the beach. That said, please allow us to respond to Wendy's concerns. Karen and I travel from our permanent home in Utah 4 times yearly so we can personally inspect the home and make upgrades and repairs. In fact, we just returned from a trip to the house on February 13 where we painted the main living area, purchased new dining furniture, added lighting to the yard, purchased new yard furniture and made minor repairs. We also restock our linens so there are always extra new towels, sheets, blankets and comforters for our guests. On our last visit we stocked the house with another dozen kitchen towels (all beach themed)! Obviously, we need to do a better job of making our guests aware of where our extra linens are stored. With regards to the elevator, we have made it clear on our web sites and in our Welcome Document that the elevator is under repair. Just two weeks ago we had the elevator repair folks at the house and they have ordered updated elevator parts from Europe. It is our hope the elevator will be operational again within the next 30 days. We are not sure what the issue with the dresser drawer was. That said, our Property Manager (Charlie) has installed a devise that ensures the drawer will not extend beyond its intended open position in the future. Finally, when we were at the house earlier this month, all the stove burners were in working condition. That said, we take guest comments quite seriously and we have purchased a new stove for the house that will be delivered March 8. We have sincerely appreciated Wendy's comments. She has been an absolute pleasure to work with throughout the booking process. We appreciate her input!

Nice beach house

  • 5 of 5

Me and some friends came to Redington Beach for a girls weekend. Had a great time. Beautiful house. Very clean and well stocked with everything you could need. The beach is just a minute away. Also, the owner was very accommodating with our check-in time. Will definitely look to stay there again when I come back for another visit.

Amazing beach vacation for the whole family!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time at this beach house. We love the area and how close the beach is. We saw dolphins almost everyday. The house has everything you need to cook or bbq and the beach toys and bikes are so much fun. The house is well taken care of and is great for families. We are already planning a time we can come back!!!

escaping Canadians.

  • 5 of 5

As a resident of Winnipeg Canada an escape to the beach for a week in winter was a welcome respite.

The location was perfect, in fact we could walk to the beach and view the ocean from the deck.

This property was perfect for our family of nine people , with ample sleeping quarters and more than enough linens to last for weeks.

It was immaculately clean, and had all the supplies that a vacationing family needs.

We would highly recommend the beachouse.

The price was incredible for the quality of the home.
